Curry Couscous

June 8, 2010

My friend Missy shared this recipe with me and swears that it’s helping her stay trim this summer. Couscous is a great grain that fills you up without all the starch of a heavy pasta. This salad is sweet and spicy and delicious! Try it for lunch this week.

2 cups dry couscous
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
2 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup raisins
1 tart apple, chopped
Juice from half a fresh lemon
1/2 cup almonds, sliced
2 fresh green onions, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, diced


  • Cook couscous according to package directions.
  • Place in a large bowl and fluff with fork. Set aside.
  • Whisk together yogurt, olive oil, vinegar, curry, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Pour over fluffed couscous and mix well with a fork.
  • Gently fold in carrots, apples, raisins, almonds, green onions and red onions.
  • Serve at room temperature.
  • Refrigerate leftovers in a tightly sealed container.

    I feel so lucky that I got to sample so many of your blog recipes in person :) I loved this couscous and I can’t wait to make it in my own kitchen.

    love the adddions to the recipe. i must say though im a fan of the tumeric- even if just a dash and i love currents ilo raisins. adding lemon is a brilliant idea.

    i’m eating some right now. i’m not all that slim and trim though :)

      Cannot get tumeric here in Denmark–that’s the only reason I deleted it :(
